Cardiac and Respiratory Complexities: Quickly Differentiate to Take Rapid Action is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 10, 2019 at Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel, Palo Alto, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approve for a maximum of 6.3 Contact Hours. Target Audience: • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists Course Description: You are assessing the patient who just returned from endoscopy following a foreign body removal. The patient is complaining of his throat itching. On assessment, his vital signs are normal, but he appears anxious. Is this normal following the procedure? Do you put him on a cardiac monitor? Should you call a rapid response? We have all been faced with the clinical dilemma when our patient has rapidly progressing dyspnea, tachypnea, fever, cough, and chest pain. What is happening? Distinguishing between heart failure, pneumonia, and ARDS can be difficult. Did you know that COPD could mask a pulmonary embolism? When your patient is wheezing, do you make the assumption it is asthma? Or could the presentation be caused by heart failure or an allergic reaction? Attending this conference will provide you with the confidence to recognize early and identify appropriate interventions to prevent further deterioration. We will discuss when non-invasive ventilation devices should - and should not - be used. If you are still struggling with blood gases, don't let blood gases intimidate you! Learn quick and easy ways to interpret ABG results. You will learn from actual patient stories to illustrate the complexities and co-morbidities of cardiac and respiratory diagnoses! Conference Objectives: • Review the nursing assessment for patients with airway or ventilatory problems. • Describe the pathophysiologic changes that occur causing the signs and symptoms associated with airway or ventilatory problems. • Select appropriate interventions for airway or ventilatory problems. • Differentiate between ventilator modes and the use of NPPV. • Evaluate appropriate treatment strategies for high-risk ECG findings. • Plan for emerging treatments in heart failure. • Analyze management options for acute coronary syndromes. • Describe the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of inflammatory cardiac disease.

You struggle to move her forward, but feel helpless and unable to breathe new life into the clinical approaches that normally serve you so well. Now imagine having the power to create a new story with your client, one in which she becomes the heroine in her life’s journey. The story is the way the mind naturally works, how it integrates thoughts and emotions, making stories one of our most powerful tools to transform and heal.

Course Objectives: • Demonstrate both prescriptive and expressive techniques to treat depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction and bereavement. • Apply journaling techniques to track and regulate client’s emotions. • Employ the principles of transformative writing in treatment for greater neural integration, more flexibility of thought, and greater range of emotion. • Implement simple writing exercises for treatment of emotional regulation and anchoring. • Use poetry reading and journaling in treatment to balance your client’s emotions. • Implement Bibliotherapy techniques in therapy to strengthen the observing ego which leads to new perspectives, behaviors and insights.
